  1. The overall effect is an endearing, successful addition to Ward's never-ending quest to assimilate every single populist song form of the 20th century.

    Zooey Deschanel is one of my favorite singers. Her voice is just absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention she's amazingly gorgeous herself. Volume One is quite a great album. Every track sounds great. It has hooky melodies and beautiful choruses. The opener "Sentimental Heart" is the stand out track on this record. The lyrics are folk poetry and it really adds to the quality to this album. All In All, Volume One is a joyous listen. B+ Full Review »

    Fresh album with lot of catchy songs. The deliberate lo-fi production hinders a bit, as also does repetitiveness. But songs like "Sweet Darling", "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here" and "Sentimental Heart" are pure magic. Full Review »
